Ah... just visited your page and loved the article about the tech savvy kids and shared it on my own blog. Also, I'm a fan of the "One Love" music video and Playing for Change. I love that you've integrated music in such a meaningful way with your history students...I'm definitely going to come back to spend more time checking out their work.

Hi Jon! I would love to check out the music integration and PBL program! Is there a group or discussion or list of links somewhere I can start checking out?

That sounds like a really interesting idea! The kids must've loved it. I think that is totally doable. What grade do you teach?

John,

Absolutely inspiring! May I share with others when I make presentations? I will attribute to you and your students. Bena

Dear Johnathan I like your idea of taking the school beyond the four walls. I would like to appeal to some students and former students, with low literacy levels and rather bleak prospects, to re-engage in education. I would be great if I could stimulate their hearts and minds.

What inspiring projects and units of work for students! Well done. I shall return again as you have got my thinking going on how I could adapt some of your ideas to my ICT classes.

Jonathan, I think you'd be a great addition to the NCSS Community Network. Hope you'll join!

BTW It also shows another valuable use of the Ning. It's not all about technology it's about the conversations. Would these conversations (this conversation in particular) have developed if we hadn't had this community to bring us together? I think not, because I would most likely not have found your 'blog' or community. This conversation is not about technology, or school 2.0, it's just about sharing and this community brings together people who are open to sharing and creating!!!! Go Ning!

Don't worry about looking around for other ideas. I would say lets start a discussion that lets us discuss in front of everyone what our thoughts are, and create some connections. I'm not saying don't look for ideas, but what I think would be more fun for me is to share what I want to achieve in math and you share what you think about connections between music and math and we just share our thinking while working to see if we think it achieves those goals. From looking at the work that you have created with your students, I am interested in your insights. It may be that I'm overly researched these days (finishing my PhD), and I'm more interested in just having a conversation. I bet that our conversation may entice others to join. That's my thoughts. Have a good one!

Two things I didn't say before, but do shape my thinking and after reading your myspace page I thought I'd share. My youngest daughter struggles with school but had a kindergarten teacher who taught her songs that she still sings to this day (she's a freshman) and that speaks to me about the power of music. Secondly, my oldest daughter (I have four) is a gifted musician and linguist and when she has teachers who understand that about her, she excels. When they don't she can be very average. Again it just makes sense to me!. I'm not musically inclined and don't really process information that way, but I'm open to figuring out how I can make it an option in math classes. Again, maybe we can collaborate some time.

Jonathon, I really like the premise of your thinking (arts as a way of engaging and strengthening learning). It's very similar to the thinking we use in the organization that I work for. We take a very intentional approach to integrate arts into content area lessons to help students make complex and intricate connections to the material. It makes sense to me. Maybe we can collab on a project sometime.

I look forward to continuing this conversation.

This is fabulous stuff, Johnathan! Thanks very much for sharing it! I'll definitely pass it along to my graduate students and others...
